The OnePlus 6T, released in November, follows the OnePlus 6 released just this past May. In terms of camera hardware, there appear to be no changes to the new model: the OnePlus 6T comes with the same dual-camera setup as its older sibling — one that combines a 16Mp main camera with a 20Mp secondary module that is used for digital zooming, a simulated bokeh effect, and other computational imaging tasks.
DxOMark has published the results of its in-depth analysis of the OnePlus 6T smartphone camera. The phone got a score of 98 points, which places it below the best smartphones of the moment.
The DxOMark lab has concluded testing on the OnePlus 6T and the results are in – a 98 overall score which is 2 points higher than the OnePlus 6 and a tie with the Google Pixel 2 for the 10th spot. The score breaks down into a 101 in imaging and 91 for video.
The primary camera features a 1/2.55″ sensor and a f/1.7-aperture lens with optical image stabilization; the secondary camera uses a slightly smaller 1/2.8″ sensor and a non-stabilized f/1.7 lens; and as before with the OnePlus 6, both cameras come with lenses that have the same equivalent focal length of 25mm.
Other camera features include phase-detection autofocus and a twin LED flash. In video mode, the OnePlus 6T rear camera can record 4K video footage at 60 frames per second, with Super Slow Motion available at 1080p and 240fps, or 720p and 480fps. (As per our protocol, however, we test video only at the camera’s default setting of 1080p/30 fps.)
Users can compose and view images on the OnePlus 6T’s 6.41-inch AMOLED display with a wide 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 2340 x 1080 resolution. The device is powered by Qualcomm’s top-end Snapdragon 845 chipset and up to 8GB of RAM.
While there may not be any changes to the hardware, our tests show that firmware changes inside the 6T have for the most part resulted in improved performance over its predecessor, the OnePlus 6.
